This holiday season I thought it appropriate to pay tribute to my home away from home by combining a few local favorites : sweet potatoes and pecans. Tall pecan trees can be found growing like weeds in the background and Texans love their pecans. Pecan pie, roasted pecans, pecan pralines… and the list go but today we’re making Texas Style Sweet Potato Wedges with Caramelized Pecans. YUM! This dish pairs nicely as a side, can be served as a sweet snack or with a salad.

What will you need to get started?
